This year’s Anel-approved gift for guys is here and it’s a great list! My guys guide is a fun one for me to make. Major shout out to my friend Jesse who helps me with this guide every year. He has his finger on the pulse of what millennial males want these days and I always love his suggestions. We are also talking about doing a guide for embarrassing dad gifts that includes things like headlamps and Crocs… both of which he has.
If you want a hugely extensive list of gift ideas for men, Uncommon Goods has a great mens gift section this year. I was perusing it last night to start my grandparents gift list (hitting the gift guide this week) when I came across a beard trimming sink cleaner and I’ve never bought anything faster for my husband. Ladies of hairy-faced men: you’re welcome.
Mug and warmer set, $88: A stylish way to keep coffee (or tea) warm.
YETI camp chair, $300: This is just so ridiculous that I had to include it. A YETI camp chair? I can think of a few people who would love this (my husband included). If you’re in the market for a non-designer camp chair, this $42 one is a solid choice.
Set of low ball glasses, $100: These glasses are such a cool shape.
The Bartender’s Manifesto, $32: A book that will teach him how to create classic cocktails and the thinking behind signature drinks like a pro.
Faherty sweater shirt, $128: Anel’s top pick of the season. He is a big Faherty fan but doesn’t have this shirt yet.
New Balance sneakers, $100: Ok the sneaks were my pick. I love the color (they also come in blue) and think they would look so good with jeans and a tee or casual button-down. And for sneaker heads like my husband, the Ultimate Sneaker coffee table book would be a fun and different gift.
And while we’re on the topic of feet, Bombas socks are a great choice for the guy who has everything.
Vintage flash light, $70: You know, for surveying the property after dark.
Digital tape measure, $26: We use this digital tape measure more often than I’d like to admit. It would make a great stocking stuffer for a male partner, father, or father-in-law.
Solo Stove, $249: You cannot go wrong with a Solo Stove. This was my top selling gift last holiday season and we love ours so much! We’ve had more backyard fires since we got one than ever. It creates the most beautiful fire with virtually no smoke but uses real wood. It is a fantastic gift.
AirPods Pro, $249: Both Jesse and Anel suggested putting AirPods Pro on this list. I have the regular AirPods but Anel swears the Pros are *that* much better because of the noise cancelling feature. Maybe I should ask for them so I can put them in when he’s eating an apple next to me on the couch… J sayin.
3-pack boxer briefs, $113: Anel’s fave undies. I always put a pair or two in his stocking!
Cashmere-lined leather gloves, $98: Tech-friendly fingertips make it easy to tap on a phone while looking stylish and staying warm.
Personalized golf ball set, $99: I can confidently say that Anel is definitely not reading this post so I can say out loud that I’m getting him this set for Christmas this year.
Set of hot sauces, $45: I never understood the Clay Hot Sauce hype until we bought a few. They’re delicious and the branding is on point.
Carhartt hat, $28: Always a classic, you can’t go wrong with a Carhartt beanie.
Everyday utility knife, $59: A better-looking box cutter that comes in a variety of colors.
Hatch light and alarm clock, $129: Anel got one of these for Christmas last year and waking up is so much more pleasant since.
Sherpa-line slippers, $59: Another classic men’s gift, the slippers that never ever go out of style.
Adventure essentials survival kit, $145: This is truly so silly but why would every guy I know want it?
MLB stadium blueprints, starting at $85: My dad and brother Jackson are the world’s biggest Yankee fans and I know they would both love one of the Yankee Stadium blueprints.
